About Author:

Nicola Davies

I was very small when I saw my first dolphin, says zoologist Nicola Davies, recalling a seminal visit with her father to a dolphin show at the zoo Enchanted at the sight of what she called the big fish jumping so high and swimming so fast, she determined right then that she would meet the amazing creatures again in the wild, where they belonged And indeed she did as part of a pair of scientific expeditions, one to Newfoundland at the age of eighteen and another to the Indian Ocean a year later In WILD ABOUT DOLPHINS, Nicola Davies describes her voyages in a firsthand account filled with fascinating facts and captivating photographs of seven species of dolphins in action Nicola Davies s seemingly boundless enthusiasm for studying animals of all kinds has led her around the world and fortunately for young readers, she is just as excited about sharing her interests through picture books The zoologist s latest offering puts a decidedly quirky twist on her years of experience POOP A NATURAL HISTORY OF THE UNMENTIONABLE is a fun, fact filled guide to the fascinating world of poop across species As a zoologist, you are never far from poop the writer explains I ve baked goose poop in an oven with my dinner, looked at bat poop under the microscope, and had my T shirt stained pink with blue whale poop I was obviously fated to write this book The exceptional combination of Nicola Davies s zoological expertise and her first rate children s writing is apparent in her remarkable catalog of award winning titles Her first book with Candlewick Press, BIG BLUE WHALE, was hailed by American Bookseller as an artfully composed study offering language exactly appropriate for four to seven year olds and precisely the right amount of information In ONE TINY TURTLE, Nicola Davies s clear, compelling narrative follows the life of the rarely seen loggerhead turtle, which swims the oceans for thirty years and for thousands of miles in search of food, only to return, uncannily, to lay her eggs on the very beach where she was born The author s next book, BAT LOVES THE NIGHT, is a tenderly written ode to a much misunderstood flying mammal, the pipistrelle bat, while SURPRISING SHARKS winner of a BOSTON GLOBE HORN BOOK Honor Award contains unexpected facts about another one of the planet s most infamous animals.When she is not off on scientific expeditions, Nicola Davies lives in a cottage in Somerset, England, where she is lucky enough to have pipistrelle bats nesting in her roof.



Comments A Girl Called Dog

  • Sarah

    I read this primarily because I love the author's nonfiction books, and she didn't let me down. This adventure follows a girl who has been kept like a prisoner in her uncle's pet store and she finally escapes with a macaw and a coati. I will be suggesting this to my animal-loving students!

    It was alright, it was a bit boring at first but once they got on the ship they found a murderer who was crazed from being starved and he tried to eat them. Some rats tried to eat them to. that was the most interesting part and in the end one of her best friends died in a shipwreck it was SO sad.

    Wasn't quite sure what direction this book was going. Ended up in South America.
